In Light of Kim Sae Ron’s Suspected Drunk Driving, K-netizens Bring Up How Big Stars Have Not Suffered Consequences For Same Transgression Including Lee Jung Jae and Kwon Sang Woo

Apparently the list of K-stars (actors, PD, variety, idols) who have been busted for drunk driving is LOOOOOONG. Like there are soooooo many even I was surprised to see some which I didn’t remember reading about. Some aren’t big names but in light of K-actress Kim Sae Ron‘s suspected drunk driving bust yesterday, K-netizens with their very long and good memories have brought up how most of those drunk driving celebs have resumed or comeback from that misconduct. The two biggest names are A-listers Lee Jung Jae and Kwon Sang Woo, male leads in movies and dramas and formerly caught drunk driving. Lee Jung Jae was caught and had his manager take the fall, and a second time later a caller phoned in his car driving erratically but without being stopped by the police in time no charges were filed. Kwon Sang Woo also crashed his car drunk driving but took off before the cops arrived, his manager took the fall, and when Kwon Sang Woo was tracked down by the police it was two days later and could no longer be tested for his alcohol level by then. Both stories were long time ago but for those newer to K-ent it may seem like Kim Sae Ron is over and she may very well be, but many other celebs have come back as people simple forget and if a drama or movie is good then it just buries those prior bad acts further down the list.
